Ivanka Trump Causes Maga Meltdown After Sharing Photograph Getting Vaccine-

Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump took to Twitter to announce that she got the Covid-19 shot and encouraged others to do the same, a move that has caused a meltdown among anti-vaxxers and conservative supporters of the former president.

The former first daughter broke her three months of social media silence on Wednesday posting a photo of her taking the coronavirus vaccine injection, with the accompanying note: “Today, I got the shot!!! I hope that you do too! Thank you Nurse Torres!!!”

Ms Trump’s enthusiastic tweet about the coronavirus vaccine met with several angry responses from Trump supporters who called it a disappointment and accused her of “virtue signalling.”

“@IvankaTrump posted herself getting vaccinated on Instagram & encouraged others to do so. The comments are astonishing,” journalist Stephanie Ruhle tweeted, mentioning some of the responses on her tweet.

One user wrote: “HARD NO - PASS - HELL NO - WHY? - THAT IS DISAPPOINTING - DON’T NEED, I HAVE AN IMMUNE SYSTEM - DISAPPOINTED IN YOU - HOPE IT WAS A PLACEBO - LMAO”

“And, Trump supporters are duped again. The Trump family has no idea what belief they stand behind,” tweeted a user named Gail Helen.

Several users on Instagram also commented saying they don’t want to be a “lab rat“, hitting out at Ms Trump for promoting the coronavirus vaccine.

“No thanks! With a 99% survival rate, I shall pass. With Bill Gates involved I will not get one,” said a user Rice448. “Hell no. Why would you post this?” asked kenny_vv. “Nope not putting that in my body,” said call_me_g95.

“Bummer. I was hoping you were above this kind of virtue signalling,” a user called rmgvd commented. “Wow that’s extremely disappointing, but honestly I’m not surprised,” said heather_15la.

“Nope and please stop trying to manipulate us into doing so. It’s surprising to see you doing this now like the left and Hollywood have been,” said a user called the__real__american.

Some users also pointed out her delay in supporting vaccines. “You could have told people that covid wasn’t a ‘dem hoax.’ You could have told people Covid wasn’t going to ‘disappear like a miracle,’ or with the ‘warmer weather’,” user Jo wrote.

“You could’ve helped stop hundreds of thousands of American deaths but you didn’t. You didn’t. So you’re too late.”

Vaccine hesitancy and anti-vaccine sentiments have been dominant among Republican supporters since the beginning of the pandemic. About 25% of Trump voters told pollster Frank Luntz that they “definitely will not” get vaccinated and another 21% said they would wait for over a year to get the shot.
